I believe in the tenacity to make a real difference. I appreciate the fearless pursuit of an adventure. I respect the character of a person far more than the things they own. I am a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, woman. I am an executive breaking down the barriers set before me. I am an advocate for those without a voice. I am a mentor to those growing into themselves. I am a lover of animals. I am a believer that we all have something to learn from each other if we are willing to listen. I am a leader of people. I am a student of life. I am a lover, a dreamer, a thinker. I am passionate, sarcastic, reasonable, giving, protective, respectful, stubborn, compassionate, introverted, honest, bold, loving, moody, appreciative…and all the other mundane morsels that make up who I am. I am also lost. A gypsy soul dressed up in a suit. I am a business woman by day; yet, I am an artist in my head, a writer in my heart, and a singer in my soul. I love hearing other people’s stories and hope we cross paths in this crazy thing called life.
*Disclaimer: This is my personal blog. The views expressed, written and shared within this blog are mine and mine alone. They do not reflect my company, my family, my friends or anyone else for that matter. I speak for myself and from my heart. If people happen to agree or disagree, they are doing so based on my personal opinion and words, not that of anyone else nor any other entity.
While this blog is most certainly not monothematic such as photography, sailing, cooking, leadership, etc., it does indeed have a theme. Its theme is LIFE…and all the messy bits therein. It is a place for me to spill my thoughts openly. Work, mom-hood, marriage, challenges, celebrations, politics, music, lessons learned…blah, blah, blah. You still reading? Sometimes it will be random passages as they roll through my mind. Other times it might be an opinion on something going on. It could be a reflection on a painful event or joyous celebration. It might be short passages of poetry or long diatribes about something I believe to be important. You might like some of what I have to say and you might disagree with some of what I have to say. Regardless, I hope you read it. I hope you enjoy pieces of it. I hope you interact with pieces of it. I hope you respond to pieces of it. I hope you learn from pieces of it. I hope you relate to pieces of it. And most importantly, I hope you share a piece of yourself because of it.
Words connect the world. Through music and poetry, through blogs and books, through letters and emails, through conversations and hushed whispers, through a simple glance of the eyes or gesture of the hands when words are not even spoken. I write to share. I write to connect. I write to ask. I write to advise. I write to love. I write to heal. I write to grow. I write because, to me, it is one of the few things that feels solid in a fluid world. I write because I have to; it’s part of who I am.
